Walk 3



Carrick Castle Walk 3 is a 1 3/4 hour round-trip walk from the castle. This walk starts at the north end of the village and ends up towards the top of the glen at the Carrick River and has some excellent views of the area, Loch Goil and Carrick Castle. It is 130 metres high at the end of the track. If you wish to go beyond the river, great care must be taken in crossing it as there is no ford or stepping stones and the river is still quite fast at that point. See the photographs of how to get there...
